Our pupils have been very enthusiastic in spreading the word about the importance of plants and encouraging everyone to be part of the young tree champion. As an initiative from the eco-team to improve each classroom and introduce planting to all pupils, a “tutor plant” for each tutor group for every year group has been instigated. Studies have shown that introducing plants to the classroom can not only boost air quality and improve your mood but may also help learning to flourish. With this in mind, the young gardeners have been busy learning how to divide and propagate Aloe vera and Spider plants to provide for the idea. The first plants have already been given to the first few classrooms and are being well looked after by the tutor groups.
